Beverly Hills is arguably one of the most famous luxury ZIP codes in the world. Multi-million dollar mansions are as much a part of the fabric of 90210 as the iconic palm-tree-dotted boulevards—but it is still a momentous occasion when a property has been introduced to the market for over $20 million.
Beverly Hills is no stranger to multi-million dollar mansions…after all, there is no more famous ZIP code in the world than 90210. That being said, there are still many properties in Beverly Hills that earn the distinction of being “extraordinary.”
Enter this newly listed Italian Villa from Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Beverly Hills. The 13,227-square-foot mansion is perched on a 1.24-acre knoll on one of the most exclusive streets in Beverly Hills, just North of Sunset Boulevard. Guarded by gates and a long private driveway lined with olive trees, the property gives one the feeling that perhaps…just perhaps…we are not in Beverly Hills anymore, but somewhere deep in the heart of Italy. La vita è bella, indeed.
An air of prestige and provenance surrounds the property. Originally built in 1926 and featured in the third edition of Architectural Digest, the magnificent estate has been impeccably restored to combine modern luxury and conveniences with Old World elegance. Like all of the great historic estates, the interiors stand as an ode to impeccable design and scale with high ceilings, generous rooms, beautiful appointments and luxurious details. A stunning collection of details grace the entire residence: hand-cut hardwood floors, incredible use of onyx, hand-carved imported Italian marble fireplaces, original antique chandeliers and moldings and light fixtures from a 16th century Venetian castle. Each room, one after the next, offers a grand statement of beauty, from the grand foyer greeting visitors to the gorgeous formal rooms including ballroom, music room, tea room/solarium and formal dining room. The chef’s kitchen stands as a work of art with elegant Jerusalem stone, double 6-burner range, two large islands, built-in coffee station, wood-burning pizza oven, walk-in refrigerator, service pantry and adjoining family room with breakfast area. On the lower level, guests will be entertained with a movie theater, incredible wine vault, and game/billiards room; while on the upper level, there are the usual luxury comforts such as a media room, three family bedroom suites, art studio, junior master guest suite and a master suite to envy with dual baths, walk-in closets, sitting area, wet bar and fireplace. Additional appointments include two maid’s suites, two powder rooms downstairs, elevator and Crestron system.
Beyond the interiors, the residence is no less inspiring. The grounds dazzle with formal gardens including rose and vegetable gardens, outdoor kitchen, loggia, cabana, sport court and mosaic tile pool and spa. There is also a two-story guesthouse, which might as well serve as a private residence complete with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room, full kitchen, laundry room and huge gym with exterior access.
Extraordinary? Truly. In fact, there is nothing ordinary about this masterful Beverly Hills estate offered for $24,995,000.
